What is Crossfit?
CrossFit is the most fun you will ever have getting really, really fit!
More scientifically put, it’s a strength and conditioning program involving constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. Classes are an hour-long and consistently include:
the workout of the day or “WOD”
We are proud to base our teaching on the tested-and-true, widely respected CrossFit methodology.
Pull-up bars, rings, jump ropes
Dumbbells, kettlebells and barbells
Running, Rowing, Biking, Jumping
We take a good mix of these different movements, combining them in creative ways under varied time constraints to create a specific stimulus to your body. Each workout will be different and the intensity will vary, causing a unique response that accelerates the body’s adaptation to exercise, meaning “you get really fit, really fast” compared to traditional physical training practices. Our classes are kept at 10-12 members per class to ensure quality coaching. It doesn’t stop there, though. In order to be fit, healthy, and reach our goals, we need proper nutrition. We are helping our members live a wholesome, active life well into their golden years.
However, it isn’t just the movements that matter, it is also how we do them. It has been shown that intense exercise (high resistance, moderate to high volume and minimal rest periods) enhances the effectiveness of functional movements even more.
